The MVL softball program consists of 2 teams-junior varsity (made up of mainly freshman and sophomore girls) and varsity which may consist of those deemed ready for higher level competition from 9th-12th grade girls. Our season begins with tryouts in mid-March and runs until the the MSHSL State Tournament the second week of June. (Caswell Park-Mankato) Many girls become acquainted with MVL softball when they attend our annual camp which is held in June. We play fastpitch softball but we have many girls who come into our program with a slowpitch background. The fundamentals of defense remain the same as the major focus for transition is in the area of batting and game strategy. We feel confident that the girls will continue to have fun while refining their skills in many facets of the game.
